Dolorosa Cosplay Redux by querulousArtisan Dolorosa Cosplay Redux by querulousArtisan
So, one day, I decided I wasn't happy with my Dolorosa cosplay.

So I sat down and decided I was going to remake it.

So I did.

Completely redone, from the start. Learned a lot of sewing techniques with this. Killed two sewing machines (old machines and found out the feed dog gears are dry rotted. Still haven't gotten around to retiming the one once I put in the new gears.) Even actually got in a grub Sufferer for it done.

There is even a new pair of horns for it, but I didn't wear them at the Ann Arbor meetup due to needing a new means of having them on my head.

Photography done by Lance Sabbag, who's work can be found here: [link] and here: [link]

Hey there, I'm not even going to pretend that I know anything about Homestuck, but I saw an older picture of this cosplay on tumblr with some dickbag saying you shouldn't cosplay this chick, so I looked at few images of her and thought I'd give you some critique. Feel free to ignore it or take it on board as you please.

Personally I think you look fine outfit wise, the only thing that seems to be missing is on the makeup. As you said in your previous comment you were running late, so I can understand the lack of anything here, but in future I think if you did some contouring on your face and perhaps lined/put on some eye makeup over the skin tone it'd really make this outfit pop.

Again, feel free to ignore this if you want, but I thought I'd throw in a completely unbiased view on the whole thing.

i feel like the color of green on your lower body is more of a nepeta-green, while the green on your... shoulder-things? is more of a kanaya/porrim/dolosora green, however it looks like the M- symbol is a different shade of green as well. Your wig also appears to need a bit of styling but otherwise you look really good!!! wow!!! you're adorable uvu
as for the shades of green, you have to pay extra attention to shades of colors in homestuck because they really matter with the character, nepeta's is leaning more towards a yellow-tint while kan's is leaning more toward a blue-ish tint. not as blue as terezi's, her is full on teal. same things happen with gamzee and eridan, as they are both purple but gamzee is more of a blue-indigo-ish purple, and e'd's is leaning more towards a pink-ish hue, or violet. sorry for ranting off so much D:

The differences in the green is probably due to lighting and how the photographer did his touchups. All the green on the outfit came from the same bolt of solid green cotton. This photo here actually shows [most] of the green in it's purest form. [link]

I also wore the wrong wig that day, as I was running late for a meetup. @_@

Thank you for your time!
